Lana Turner (born Julia Jean Turner; February 8, 1921 – June 29, 1995) was an American film and television actress. Discovered in 1937 by a reporter as she sipped a soda in a Hollywood ice cream parlor and signed to a film contract by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer at the age of 16, Turner first attracted attention in They Won't Forget (1937), and later starred in featured roles, often as an ingenue.
